Teen amputee denied damages for lost limbs

Victim's father slams Singapore court ruling

- +

The father of Nitcharee "Nong Than" Peneakchanasak, who lost both legs in a train accident in Singapore almost three years ago, is "very disappointed" with the Singaporean High Court's ruling against his daughter and has vowed to fight on for justice. 

Nitcharee ‘Nong Than’ Peneakchanasak, 16, and her father Kittanesh. The family lost a Singaporean High Court case seeking S$3.4 million (about 81 million baht) in damages for an accident in which Nong Than fell on to the tracks of Singapore’s Ang Mo Kio MRT station on April 3, 2011, and lost her legs.

"As a father, I have to do everything to help seek justice for my beloved daughter," Mr Kittanesh told the Bangkok Post on Friday in the wake of the court ruling.
